    I deliberately missed this movie in theaters. I wanted to watch it for the very first time on DVD. I was curious whether the sequel can be better than the original movie. Well, it can. Actually - it is!!!
    Shrek 2 is a lot funnier, the characters are richer in detail and the story is a little bit more put together.
    The video transfer is excellent. The transfer is as close as it gets to perfection. The animation is superb. The amount of detail in each scene is truly amazing and all the animated characters are flawless.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used throughout the movie and create a nice sound envelope.
    The disc also includes dubbed version in Hebrew (DD 5.1), Croatian and Estonian (DD 2.0). Great for the kids!
    The menus are beautifully animated with sound.
    The extras include a parody about "American Idol" (excellent!!!), a video clip, some sing-alongs, interactive games, 2 commentaries, a picture gallery, some (probably intentional) technical bloopers, a behind the scenes featurette and some DVD-ROM activities.
    Bottom line - a great sequel which turns out to be even better than the original packed in an excellent disc. Get it now!
